Exactly What Khloé Kardashian Eats on a Low-Carb Meal Plan
Since giving birth to her first child, True, in August, Khloé Kardashian admits she's been closely monitoring her diet. The health-conscious star is working with celebrity nutritionist Dr. Goglia to get her health back on track and regain her pre-baby figure, she explains in a post on her website.
"I'm currently on a low-carb diet that my nutritionist, Dr. Goglia, gave me," she wrote in the post. Low-carb diets restrict carbohydrate-rich foods, including pasta, bread, and sugary foods, which can be problematic for cravings, but Kardashian says that hasn't been an issue. "It has lots of protein, so I'm able to go all out at the gym, but the best part is that I'm never hungry because I'm always eating!"
Here's exactly what the new mum eats on a low-carb meal plan.
Before the Gym
Kardashian doesn't exercise on an empty stomach. "If you're working out early in the morning, you need some energy," she explains. "Dr. Goglia recommends one tablespoon of jam with one tablespoon of almond butter,"
After the Gym
This snack is crucial to fuel your body, she says. "What you eat when you're done working out is so important. I have two eggs (they can be poached, over easy or scrambled) with one cup of oatmeal and another of fresh fruit, like berries."
The new mum reaches for a piece of fruit mid-morning to tie her through to lunch. She prefers to choose the fruit based on seasonality.
Tackle afternoon hunger pangs with a healthy snack. "Don't let yourself get hungry. Have a piece of fruit with a handful of almonds," she says.
Almonds are clearly the star's go-to snack. She nibbles on them again before dinner and writes, "to hold you over until dinner, grab another handful of almonds with a cup of vegetables, like cherry tomatoes."
